    The aromas to this Brunello riserva are stunning with subtle forest fruits, orange peel and mushrooms. Full body, very fine tannins and a long and persistent finish. The flavors are so complex with earth and dark fruits. Very fine and dusty tannins. Drink or hold.

    The 2010 Brunello di Montalcino Riserva Vigna Paganelli is magnificent. Huge swaths of tannin coat the palate as the 2010 shows off its power, breadth and overall intensity. Plum, black cherry, bittersweet chocolate, smoke, licorice and cloves are some of the many notes that hit the palate. The Riserva is dark, powerful and brooding. It will require at least a handful of years before it becomes approachable. These old vines, planted in 1964, confer weight, power and gravitas, all qualitites that come through loud and clear on the huge, explosive finish.

    The 2010 Brunello di Montalcino Riserva Vigna Paganelli is a phenomenal achievement and a wine that captures not only the spirit of this classic vintage, but the true essence of an age-worthy wine like Brunello. This single vineyard Riserva is sharp, pristine and immaculate. It starts slow and shy, but then blossoms to beautiful intensity and aromatic brilliance. It delivers a very authentic and genuine read of Sangiovese with wild berry aromas followed by pressed violets, wet earth, tobacco and lightly toasted spice. The bouquet is seamless and very long in persistence. The same holds true for the mouthfeel. The wine delivers a fine and silky texture with a good dose of power and personality at the rear.

    94/100

    A dense, powerful version, packed with cherry, plum, herb, earth and underbrush flavors. Vibrant, showing solid grip, this ends with echoes of fruit, earth and tobacco. Best from 2019 through 2032. B.S.

    The 2010 Il Poggione ‘Vigna Paganelli’ Brunello Riserva is a striking wine, impressive for its elegance and refined character. As this slowly opens it begins to release alluring aromas of cherries and blackberries along with dried floral, minerals and leather all taking shape in the glass. This sophisticated Brunello displays remarkable overall structure and balance with fine silky tannins leading up to the long finish. A simply gorgeous, age worthy Brunello, which will demand at least a few years of cellaring before it will show its best.
